  32. Look at old photos or videos together
  33. Check out local live music
  34. Go apple, strawberry, blueberry picking (depending on the season)
  35. Hit the tennis ball around, even if you are both terrible
  36. Swim laps at a local pool, use kick boards and chat
  37. Get up early enough to watch the sunrise at the beach – bring coffee in a thermos
  38. Shop for dinner at a local farmers market
  39. Create your own craft beer tasting at home
  40. Go to trivia night
  41. Play bartender and serve each other handcrafted cocktails
  42. Train for a race together
  43. Help clean out each others closets and donate to Goodwill
  44. Talk about something random vs the usual work/family/day to day convo
  45. Make breakfast in bed and spend Sunday in your PJs
  46. Go snowshoeing or rollerblading, depending on the season
  47. Make ice cream from scratch
  48. Just a walk around your neighborhood

Tip: When deciding on a restaurant to go to, try to the rule of three.  One of you picks three places and the other person picks one out of the three.  It narrows down the choices and involves both people in the decision making.
